    Default Karstoderm and Mycosynth Lattice

    If I have a Mycosynth Lattice and Karstoderm out, would all permanents entering the battlefield cause the removal of a counter from Karstoderm?

    Yes. Permanents enter the battlefield as artifacts and will trigger Karstoderm.

    If only the lattice was in play and I cast Karstoderm, would the Karstoderm trigger its own ability after entering the battlefield thus effectively starting with 4 counters instead of five?

    I believe it would yes. Because it enters the battlefield with the counters, then it sees itself entering the battlefield as an artifact and it's "remove a +1/+1 counter" ability triggers and resolves as normal.

    Exactly the reason DatAsh said. It enters as an artifact, sees that an artifact entered the battlefield, and triggers accordingly.

    that doesnt make sense because it has to be on the battlefield to see when other permanents enter the battlefield, and obviously it is not on the battlefield as it enters the battlefield so how can it see itself entering the battlefield?

    Karstoderm enters the battlefield. Then, all permanents on the battlefield are checked to see if any abilities should trigger. The game sees that there's a Karstoderm that needs to trigger, and it triggers accordingly.

    so if theres lattice on the battlefield and somehow five Karstoderms enter the battlefield at the same time, would they all die?
